Product Description
Your students will love learning about one of the most inspirational African-American women of all time. **This unit has been completely updated with reading passages and activities in 2017!!***

One cold day in December 1955, Rosa Parks was told move to the back of the bus. Rosa was tired of being discriminated against and refused to move from her seat. Instead, she politely said, "No!" The bus driver called the police, and Rosa Parks was arrested. After this incident, she became even more determined to fight for equal rights. She gave speeches encouraging other African-Americans to stand up for their rights and be treated fairly.

This biography unit has it all! There are a variety of activities for you to teach about Rosa Parks life story. This could be a week long unit or as short as a day or two, depending on time allotted and the needs of your students. There are several ways to use this unit to differentiate for students.
